Finally something to post about!

Intro with a reminder that Sam was ALL ALONE !(THIS WILL BE IMPORTANT >>>> YAY!!!)


HUUGG!!!! OF course that's like YAY!!! because it's totally what they do when one dies and returns. HA!!! It's like the ONLY time they hug so show has to keep killing them off so they can HUG!! And what a schmoopy hug it was!

THEY LOOK GREAT! (Can I just quietly say... ESPECIALLY DEAN! Arghhh...did I say that?! Yes I did! He looks A-MAZING. So does Sam - but, you know, that's just a given...;D)

I'm even excited for disheveled, LOOKING WORSE FOR WEAR Castiel! What's the story?! I wanna know!! (I know...see... I can get excited for Cas stuff! I can! *g*)

KEEVINNNNNNN!!!!!!! LOOK AT HOW AWESOME HE IS! It looks like we have another kick ass hunter. Look how far he has come since the end of S7? No longer the timid, out of his depth boy. But... OMG?! What happened to him....?! He was with Crowley! Will he be working for Crowley maybe?! (Was that Kevin's girlfriend in there?) KEVIN IS COOL! AND CUTE!


And you know that spoiler about Sam not caring about Dean being gone?! Jared clarified that that ISN'T THE CASE! Don't forget - they not only have 23 episodes to fill this season but a possible 2 seasons more. They HAVE to do new things with their relationship. And from what I've heard... THEY ARE! \o/ ALL WILL BE FINE!


(And now my dear friends... THAT WILL BE IT FOR SPOILERS FOR ME!! I have been corrupted enough... /o\)

7th-Sep-2012 02:03 am (UTC) - I WILL RESIST!!!! I WILL RESIST, DAMN IT!!!!!!
My flist is flooded with S8 promo squee yet I am resisting the temptation to sneak a peak. There's only 27 days to go and I know I can last the distant. Just the hints and ""Feels"" I'm getting vibes of is enough to have me drooling with anticipation.
7th-Sep-2012 02:40 am (UTC) - Re: I WILL RESIST!!!! I WILL RESIST, DAMN IT!!!!!!
I KNOW I KNOW!! And I was TOOOO weak to resist! I figured I had been spoiled anyway so why not go the WHOLE HOG! :))

And you know that spoiler about Sam not caring about Dean being gone?! Jared clarified that that ISN'T THE CASE!

Really? When, where and how did this happen? I hadn't heard. Because it was mostly what he said at Comic Con that had me depressed. Of course even in this promo, he doesn't look like he's exactly been pining away. I'm also not thrilled about them throwing another entire year into the timeline. That makes it what? 2014? I don't even know anymore.

Otherwise I do like all the same things you're happy about here. I think I'm just going to have to Let Go and Let Show, you know? Quit worrying about my own ideas of how their relationship should work and just enjoy the ride. And fill in the rest with fanfic. Unless your answer to my first question fixes all...

He said it at the recent VanCon. My friend redteekal was there and let me know and I also had a comment on the separation meta saying the same thing. Basically he said there had been an misunderstanding about that and Sam doesn't give up on Dean. (which, I really can't imagine him doing. I can only expect that if he has exhausted EVERY avenue then he might give in to getting on with his life - the way Dean did during Sam's absence).


I admit that under the surface I am feeling much the same as you. I'm not particularly happy that it's another whole year (why do they do that when 4 months is plenty long enough to be separated!!?) I'm not tooooo worried about Sam seeming lack of pining because when S6 opened Dean was looking very content also. Ok...he was pining a little but he had got on with his life. I'd rather it not be like that (because I am convinced that they CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT EACH OTHER!), but if they are going to be doing a kind of mirror to Dean's year alone then I suppose I can see that.

Also, Dean looks remarkably well for someone who might have just gotten out of Purgatory. Can't wait for their backstories.

I'm not entirely convinced we are getting the whole picture. There's something brewing and I'm thinking that what we see might not be exactly what we expect (not so much the promo, but in terms of the boys and what's been going on).

So yeah. I've decided that it's easier and more fun to be excited at this point. When the show actually starts and we start to get the whole picture, then there might be gnashing of teething and ranting and raving.

Jared's clarification and the fact that they chose to focus on the brothers' reunion and hug and Dean's emotional "C'mere" makes me think they are definitely making the season about Sam and Dean and their relationship. And that makes me pretty hopeful. Maybe Crowley manipulated Sam into believing Dean couldn't possibly be in Purgatory? I'm crossing my fingers that there's some explanation. Because clearly the boys are as in love as ever. Just sayin :)
7th-Sep-2012 06:14 am (UTC)
Yes yes! They seem so warm together, so I am VERY curious about how it all comes about.

From the few things I've read their relationship is still very much in the forefront. There will no doubt be some issues, but it wouldn't be SPN if there wasn't.

Oooh - and I love the idea that Crowley (or someone) has manipulated Sam.

I am also very curious about the little bit of counting down they do before the promo - it's all about exactly how long they had been apart - DOWN TO THE SECOND! It matters!! So awesome! <33

*mild spoiler re Cas*
Pardon me for jumping in here, but I read somewhere that Misha said the difference in beards is because Dean/Jensen has been filming present day stuff and flashbacks while Cas/Misha is only in the flashbacks... so far at any rate. Therefore Jensen has to shave for the present day scenes but Misha doesn't. It seems to be one of those unfortunate production issues that doesn't mean anything but still feeds into the story. I suppose they could've had Misha shave and just make up something about not aging or changing in Purgatory, but I also think they wanted Cas looking haggard and worn.

I love how the fans of this show get so caught up in the whole but is that in character? question for every little piece of dialogue and action and even the intonation of the words delivered. But then I also feel sorry for them because the writing is never going to be infallible after over a hundred episodes (is there a case anywhere of any tv series running over 8 seasons where the main characters have been written perfectly consistently every single episode???) and if you let your entire enjoyment of the show ride on this aspect then you are going to fall out of love and be disappointed.

I think you can get outraged and vent loudly to all and sundry when it happens and still be just as head over heels in love with the show at the same time. Case in point - I was rather vocally objecting (you no doubt ever was in the room during said objections!) when A. Dean doesn't recognise it's not Sam almost INSTANTLY in Swap Meat like he totally would have had he been anything like IN character. or B. When Sam says that the UTTERLY RIDICULOUS COMPLETELY IMPLAUSIBLE WORDS isn't that a Transformer re the Metatron reveal. or C. When Dean calls Sam out on being a bitch about the Amy Pond incident and gets stuck into Sam and Sam is all - oh I'm sorry you were right Dean.

THERE. 3 cases off the top of my head that just get my goat everytime I think of them or watch them. But that stuff is NEVER gonna be grounds for me getting all depressed and morose about my show not being what I want exactly. I LOVED the promo and yet I was still Wait a minute - a whole year?? That's a bit much, first reaction is I don't like that idea and so I did the handwave thing and moved on to all the good stuff in the promo. I suspect there will be things I take issue with in Season 8 but you know what? I KNOW I'm still gonna love my show because that's ALWAYS gonna be there. You can choose to focus on the inconsistencies to the point that you now feel no enjoyment whatsoever or you can accept that it's gonna happen and still love the general overall awesome that is this show, that general overall awesome gives us SOOOOO many moments to love and to laugh and to smile. I almost wanna start compiling a post of such moments! Damn another project on the board!

Wow...you talked about spewing your feels on your LJ - I apologise for spewing all mine in your comments! LOL!
7th-Sep-2012 11:02 am (UTC)

If I WANTED to I could moan about a variety of inconsistencies (and yes! My god! Swap Meat actually happened and it was awful and ridiculous but considering I can count on one hand the episodes I hated that leaves a HELLOFALOT I loved!).

I think if someone has gone off the show then, well, nothing is really going to change their minds. And I get that. A show like this seems to totally invest people and when that investment fades they can point to all sorts of reasons why that happened. Essentially, if the characters are no longer pulling you in then, yeah, that connection is lost.

At the moment, for me, it's just not the case. I honestly can't believe how HAPPY that promo made me today. Not just because of what it contained but just the thought that SHOW WILL BE BACK SOON. And that's exciting because of all the things that that entails. Not only watching the show but then engaging in all the chat and thoughts about said show. I will no doubt moan about certain things. I am sure I will tear my hair out about certain things. The day something bothers me in the show and I don't care or rant and rage will be the day my investment has faded.

I am still ridiculously in love with the boys and the universe. Sure, I get frustrated with some aspects - of which some is fandom related - but while the majority of it leaves me squeeing and thoughtful and swooning I know I'm still in for the ride.

HEE!! Mutual spewing of feels! NOW THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT!!

Should I watch? I've been going back and forth. I figure I've heard enough about it that I won't be spoiled much. It might tide me over until we get the season 7 GAG REEL! Waiting, pacing, waiting, checking calendar, checking watch, checking the mailbox, whining are we there yet?
7th-Sep-2012 11:08 am (UTC)
If you are somewhat spoiled already then I'd say yes. It's completely uplifting. If you are not spoiled at all then I would say NO NO! It completely gives away how the season starts. Though I'm sure there is a SO MUCH MORE going on. :DD

It spoils for a couple of returning characters too. ;)

AND I WANT THE GAG REEL! When is it due? It's usually early Sept yeah? *grabby hands* (I already have a couple of songs ready to vid it to also...;D)

Oooh - where's your icon from?
7th-Sep-2012 05:27 am (UTC)
I'm kind of loving the way this sets up the idea of Purgatory as having been weirdly good for Dean and Cas both? Dangerous and horrible, sure, but "everyone out for themselves" at least means "everyone gets to make choices for themselves" and I think that would sound better to them than Hell or Heaven.

I'm so excited for Sassy Kevin. <3

And you know that spoiler about Sam not caring about Dean being gone?! Jared clarified that that ISN'T THE CASE!

Admittedly, I'm not up on the vast majority of interview spoilers, but I don't think anyone expected us to think Sam didn't care Dean was gone? More along the lines of "there was nothing he could do so he decided to grieve and let it be," which I at least understood to mean "Sam learned his lesson about what happens when people go around ripping interdimensional holes in the universe." IMO, that's pretty far off from "he doesn't care about his brother."

I don't know. I really love the idea for one of them to have broken this insane Winchester cycle of escalation. They can have healthy love! #misguided optimism
7th-Sep-2012 11:38 am (UTC)
I really love the idea that it could be good for Dean - and maybe Cas? (hard to tell with him looking so forlorn.. but I look forward to seeing his journey...)

You really hit the nail on the head here. I think for both Sam and Dean this could be showing some maturity here. Or some growth. I think if Sam had spent his time suicidal and looking for ways to make a deal that would lead to the end of the world then he hasn't learned anything. If the boys have somehow come through with this with character development and genuine growth then I think that's exciting. (Doesn't mean I don't want to see them do crazy stupid things for each other...;D)

And I'll jump on that optimism anytime!

7th-Sep-2012 11:41 am (UTC)
I KNOW!! :(((

I wasn't going to but I NEEDED to.

I'm satisfied now so THAT'S IT!

7th-Sep-2012 04:14 pm (UTC)
Wow-we get a hug in the promo, even.. And that smile...::happy sigh::
8th-Sep-2012 04:32 am (UTC)
The smiles is super lovely! And HUG! YAY! :D
7th-Sep-2012 04:25 pm (UTC)
Well, all I can say is if you go into Season 8 being disappointed and just saying it will suck than IT WILL. Sometimes, I know it's hard when the show is doing things you don't like but that is kind of no excuse being pessimistic all the time. If the show wasn't up to standards and just making me depressed and I just felt obligated to watch it, I'd just stop and maybe reevaluate why I love it. Than hopefully I can rediscover my hidden love for the show and be EXCITED.

Because that's the whole point of the new Season. To be EXCITED, GLEEFUL, CRAZY OUT OF YOUR MIND HAPPY!

Sure some spoilers are unfavorable but like I have been saying all along NEVER take those things at face value. As Jared said, spoilers are misconstrued and sometimes just flat out untrue. Don't hinge your whole view of Season 8 on spoilers, believe me.


I'm excited! And I really hope a lot of fans who have lost their love or excitement for the show can rediscover it and be excited too.
8th-Sep-2012 04:36 am (UTC)
It's weird but when I hear fans being negative I immediately want to say...but..but... look on the bright side! But I get that some are just over it... or rather, over what the show is offering now.

The thing I don't get is we haven't even had the season yet. I'm not sure we can be completely "OMG, it's going to be awful" when we haven't even seen it.

If, after say 6 eps and it's no longer offering me what I used to enjoy from it, then I'll start to re-evaluate. I suspect the day I stop loving it will be the day that I forget it's on, or don't care if I watch it or not. I really don't want that to happen. At the moment I'm just excited we have another season and our boys will be on our screens again soon.

8th-Sep-2012 07:59 am (UTC)
Your post made me watch the promo!! :DDDDDD

And indeed: Bring it friggin' on! About time my weekly dose of SPN returns. :D

10th-Sep-2012 11:19 pm (UTC)
I was so excited when I saw the trailer that I was a a loss for words other than EEEEEEEEEE! Can't wait!
